Hey guys! Sorry I have been MIA lately but my computer is still getting fixed. I'm hoping to get it back this weekend. Seems like it's been forever, in a sense it has been 2 weeks!. We have had a long week. We just wrapped up the baseball season, yesterday. And boy, are we proud of those boys. They had a awesome season!!
Our oldest is getting ready to leave on a 2 week summer tour with the select choir group. They will be going to Montreal, Canada - Boston and New York. She's super excited about it!! Keep us in prayer!
Tomorrow is field day for both kiddos. More SUN for us!!
We've reached the end of the school year. Yay!! The kids can't wait for summer to begin. And quite frankly, neither can I.
I just found out today that I will be returning to work next Fall. WOOHOO - A prayer answered!!!
Our house papers are being finalized - it has taken longer than we expected but that's OK. We know everything will work out.

I hope everyone has a great holiday weekend.

Quick story that I wanted to share before I go -
L and I went to the Dallas Zoo today with a few of our good friends. We enjoyed it!!
Too funny so I have to share - as soon as we walk in I ask L what she would like to see. It went a little like this...
Me: L what animals would you like to see first?
L: I want to see Gorillas mamma.
Me: Ok, lets go see them.
(as we got closer, i could see the excitement in her eyes. Mind you she had NEVER seen the real thing. She only knew the ones in her books., the last time we were at the zoo was when she was 7 months old...sooo.....)
We pull up and I could clearly see it sitting by the window, but she never saw it coming. As she approached the glass window to look in. It stood up and looked her right in the face. She let out the LOUDEST scream and ran!!!
L: I just want tooooo goooo HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It took her a while to get out of the stroller again. It was so sad but too funny!
We talked about it all the way home and had to share it with everyone who would listen.

This weekend we are headed to Farmers Branch for a weekend tournamnet - fun, fun!!!

HA! That is too funny. The first time my youngest saw the ocean she covered her eyes and only peeked through her fingers. Kids do the funniest things. Have a great weekend.
